Description
Swimmers frolic in the water at Wakulla Springs outside of Tallahassee. Alligators, birds and other wildlife from the springs also make an appearance. The camera follows a car on a narrow road, then slowly pans to a ditch filled with litter. Gentle waves roll over the sand at an anonymous beach location before the camera pulls back to reveal heaps of rusted beer cans and broken bottles piled in the dunes. Several young men gather the trash, filling over a dozen grocery bags with rubbish. Next, sewer runoff fills a calm water body with sludge. Then, factory smokestacks cough enormous black plumes of soot. The segment ends with a few shots of flowers and the reflecting pool at Alfred B. Maclay Gardens. Produced by WFSU-TV.
